Happy first weekend of the New Year! In my part of the country we are experiencing the big bombo deep freeze after the big bombo snowstorm we got yesterday. Lucky for me, five of my six dogs are either Siberian Husky (the momma dog) or Siberian Husky Half Breeds (my 15 month old puppies, whose daddy is a Dalmatian mixed with we don’t know what), so I can still put most of the dogs out to play a few times a day. I am into week two of my six week not allowed to do much of anything post-surgery recovery period, so my family is tasked with most of my chores and I miss walking all of my dogs more than words can say. The next four weeks cannot pass quickly enough for me, but I suppose that is true for a lot of people this time of year, regardless of whether or not they have sutures in the process of healing. I heard on teevee that a “thaw” may be coming next week, so that’s something to hope for! Let’s see what excitement the dextrosphere has for us right now:

Doug Ross brings us  A TIMELINE OF TREASON: How the DNC and FBI Leadership Tried to Fix a Presidential Election

As an aside, this appears to be the biggest political scandal in the history of the country. Never before has an outgoing administration attempted to fix a presidential election. It’s like something out of a third world country. But then, Obama always admired dictators like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.

If seeing that spreadsheet of nefarious activity has you upset, and it should, maybe some pictures of our First Lady looking gorgeous will cheer you up. MOTUS has the goods, HERE.

Right here at DaTech Guy Blog, Fausta has a debunking of the ridiculous book, Fire and Fury,  by that lying weirdo, Michael Wolff. However, I take exception to something she quoted from Althouse which infers that My Donald is “Fat” – President Trump is not “fat”, he is robust, hale, heart, mighty, big, and strong.

Dianny further debunks the Anti-Trump Fan Fiction.

Adrienne has some thoughts about the type of people who are raving about that stupid book.

Wolff has a reputation for making things up and pretending that they really happened, and he even put a disclaimer in his book admitting that the stuff therein is junk and then blames his lying on President Trump – of course!

From the department of what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, iOTWReport.com is writing a book, and you can help! Check it out and be sure to read the comments section!

Bill Quick (the guy who named the Blogosphere!) has Some Thoughts on Trump and What 2018 Will Bring to the Islamic World that are well worth reading.

The Trump Curse is real. In 2016, I wrote about Macy’s and their Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) affliction:

It was a big hubabaloo in the enemedia when Macy’s drank the SJW Kool Aidand stopped carrying Trump brand items from their stores after Donald Trump thruthfully made mention of the fact that violent criminals invading our country across our uninforced southern border are harming Ameican Citizens, but Macy’s is now learning that they drank poison:

CINCINNATI, Aug. 11 (UPI) — Macy’s Inc. will close about 100 of its 728 stores, beginning in early in 2017, the company announced Thursday.
[…]
The announcement comes as Macy’s revenue decreased 3.9 percent in the second quarter of 2016, and sales in the first half of 2016 totaled $11.637 billion, down 5.9 percent from the comparable 2015 period. Another Macy’s statement cited the closing of 41 underperforming stores in 2015.

Try to stump the Trump and wind up in the dump.

Fast Forward to the present and let’s see how they are doing: Macy’s announces 5,000 job cuts, 7 new store closures

In other TDS related news, leftists protested outside of Twitter’s headquarters demanding that President Trump be banned from the platform. Twitter has issued a statement in response. 

Instapundit has a shot and chaser about the Trump economy.

Hope for the future: “Trumpism” is alive, well, and growing on college campuses! That will surely melt some snowflakes!

Happy 2018, everyone! MAGA!

Happy almost New Year, everyone! I am back. The surgeries went well and I am sore, but recovering. Some friends asked me if I got sent home with good meds, and of course, due to the War On Pain Patients, the answer is “no”, but the pain is less bad than I had expected it to be so other than the fact that I am under doctor’s orders not to do much of anything for the next few weeks, tiring easily, and having itchy (from the healing I am told) booboos on my belly and the aforementioned soreness, I am OK and am getting a little better every day. Thank you to everyone who prayed for me or held me in kind thoughts.

This is my first attempt at sitting in a chair at a desk to use the computer, and it is uncomfortable but tolerable for the moment. I’m thinking a Last Friday of 2017 MAGA linkaround sounds like a good plan right now, so here we go!

CNN has been trying to stalk President Trump through a gap in some bushes outside of a Florida golf course, like the creepy freaks that they are, and they were stymied by a white box truck that parked in front of said gap. This caused the Counterfeit News Network to lose their collectivist minds:

Joy Villa got lots of attention for showing up on the red carpet at an awards show wearing a Trump MAGA gown, and we deplorables thought that was pretty neat, but it turns out that Joy is not what she pretended to be and is instead simply an opportunist and an attention hog. Dianny unmasked her HERE. I keep saying, “The Trump Curse is real”, and am proven correct every time karma bites one of his attackers in the butt, but Joy Villa did much worse than those who openly attack My Donald and his supporters, she is a big stinking phony who pretended to be aboard the Trump Train and then turned on everyone who had given her support, and now, Joy Villa is imploding. I predict she will circle the drain some more before her impending karmic flush washes her back to the depths of obscurity. And don’t be surprised if she has all kinds of weird bad luck as well (see Lindsey Vonn for example).

I hope you enjoy the links! Time for me to exit this chair until the next time. Happy New Year, y’all, MAGA!

While driving down Route 55 in Lagrangeville, New York (about 60 miles north of New York City) on the way to a medical appointment yesterday, I spotted a sign outside of Kelly’s Steaks and Spirits that sure lifted mine! The sign announced that they DO NOT air NFL games in that establishment and the sign further went on to say:

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

If I were not driving at the time I would have taken a picture.  I do not have the resources to go out for dinner, but that sign alone (in NEW YORK) is enough reason for me to want to check that place out if the opportunity to dine out should ever present itself to me. Predictably, the Trump Derangement Syndrome afflicting people has caused an outbreak of hatred and poor reviews for this establishment.  At the top of their page, Facebook highlights certain words they think we need to know people are using:

Today, broadcast television was interrupted with breathless “Breaking News” that Steve Bannon had been fired from the Trump administration. You would think that nothing else was happening in the world today or that nobody at home wanted to actually watch the end of their shows which had been preempted for this news and the endless public pontificating and bloviating over what it all means. Talking heads had been predicting this event and/or wishing for it for a long time, having long smeared Bannon as a raaaaacist (FYI, they have done and will continue to do this to pretty much anyone and everyone who works for President Trump, or defends him, or fails to denounce him sufficiently to their leftist liking).

The left and their #NeverTrump enablers are delighted and spewing their gloat at any public platform they can find. They think they have a major victory that will further their insidious goal of bringing down President Donald J. Trump. They are as wrong as they are obnoxious, and they are plenty obnoxious!

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Not to mention smug.

You know what?

It doesn’t matter.

In the final analysis, Steve Bannon was staff, always staff; simply staff.

Political Strategist Bannon did not create any of President Trump’s policies or platform issues.  The political policy from President Trump is directly from President Trump.

Here is a little experiment you can try: Go to the local grocery store or gas station and ask someone on line with you what they think of Steve Bannon getting fired, ask again at the waiting room in your doctor’s office or at the mechanic or hairdresser or wherever you go in your every day life where Americans are going about their lives away from the hair-on-fire histrionics of cable news and new media. Odds are the answer you get will be along the lines of, “Steve who?” – even among people who voted for Donald Trump.

And that is the point, people: we did not vote for Steve Bannon, or Sean Spicer or that Scaramucci fella – or anybody else who President Trump has fired or will fire in the future for that matter –  we voted for Donald J. Trump and as long as he is still our President and as long as he is still doing everything he can to MAGA despite the opposition he gets from all sides, it is all gravy. We don’t care. Covfefe on that for a while.

UPDATE: Mt.Bannon has landed on his feet, back at Breitbart, and he remains loyal to President Trump.

I am one of those people you hear about who LOVES President Trump. I have loved him since I was a little girl, when he was called a “young entrepreneur”, and I had always hoped he would run for President.

Every day that Donald J. Trump is my President is a dream come true.

I took great delight during Primary Season as he cleaned the clocks of his Republican opponents who were so disdainful of Trump and his supporters. I was disappointed to see so many in the stupid party (the Republicans sure do earn that moniker) continue to oppose Trump even after he was the Republican nominee. I enjoyed the presidential campaign immensely because we finally had someone running against a Democrat who wasn’t a mealy mouthed pansy – My Donald is no shrinking violet and unlike previous GOPers to run in recent memory, NOBODY was going to steamroll Donald J. Trump! I turned as many Wednesdays as I could into #TrumpDays at my blog, trying to put some Trump-positive stuff into the ether to combat all the hysterical negativity being spread left and right about the man. I knew he had the support of the regular people who live and work in this country, no matter what the lying media and #NeverTrump mob had to say about it; my only concern was that Shrillary and the left would steal a win with the Dems’ penchant for fraud and skulduggery. I stayed up late on Election Night waiting to see who would be declared the winner, and, thank God, it was My Donald.

It was a long and tense wait between the time Trump was elected to Inauguration Day – I was very afraid that something bad might happen to him before then that would prevent him from taking office, and the braying histrionics from lunatic leftists and those who claim to be on the right never let up. I had a medical incident and suffered a near death experience during this time, and when I was on the Other Side, one of the reasons I gave for why I hoped to get sent back to the land of the living was that I did not yet have the chance to live in an America in which Donald J. Trump is President.

Finally, six months ago yesterday, Donald Trump was officially President of the United States of America and I am incredibly grateful to alive to witness all the awesomeness. I love the way Trump fights and how he is unapologetic about putting America and Americans first.

The media is too busy fixating on trying to destroy My Donald, so here are some of Trump’s accomplishments at the six month mark, via The White House:

SPURRING JOBS CREATION: President Trump’s impact on the economy has been immediate, spurring job creation across the country.

  • President Trump signed the “Buy American and Hire American” Executive Order, prioritizing the interests of American businesses and workers.
    • “Buy American” promotes American industry, protecting it from unfair competition by targeting the abusive use of waivers and exceptions to laws on the books.
    • “Hire American” calls for the reform of our visa programs, ensuring that they no longer displace American workers, while fully enforcing laws governing the entry of foreign workers.
  • President Trump signed an Executive Order, making it easier for businesses to start and expand apprenticeship programs.
  • The Dow Jones Industrial Average has increased 17 percent since election day, hitting new highs 25 times this year already.
  • Since January, the economy added 863,000 jobs, including 821,000 in the private sector.
    • 79,000 construction jobs added since January.
    • 42,000 mining and logging jobs added since January.
    • 41,000 manufacturing jobs added since January.

CUTTING DOWN JOB KILLING REGULATIONS: Just six months in office, President Trump has taken historic action to eliminate wasteful and costly regulations that have stood in the way of hardworking Americans.

  • The American Action Forum estimates a potential $70 billion in costs reductions from President Trump’s actions to cut back regulations.
  • President Trump has signed 14 Congressional Review Act resolutions into law, ending burdensome Obama-era rules and regulations, more than all other Presidents combined.
  • By withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, President Trump protected America from a bad deal that would have harmed our economy.
    • According to a study by NERA Consulting, meeting the Obama Administration’s obligations under the Paris Climate Accord could have cost the United States economy nearly $3 trillion.
    • According to the same study, 6.5 million industrial sector jobs could have been lost, including 3.1 million manufacturing sector jobs.
  • In order to control regulatory costs, President Trump signed an Executive Order mandating that for every one new regulation, two old regulations must be eliminated.
  • Through infrastructure reform and investment, the Trump Administration aims to dramatically reduce permit approvals for projects from 10 years to 2 years, spurring investment and job creation.

OPENING UP AMERICAN ENERGY: In six months, President Trump has turned around America’s policy on energy production after years of opposition.

  • President Trump has acted aggressively to increase exports of our energy resources to a global market.
    • Updated guidance from the Treasury Department to allow the United States to export coal.
    • Expedited the permitting and approval processes of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals and exports, including the approval of the Lake Charles LNG terminal in Louisiana.
  • President Trump has unleashed oil and gas development in the United States by expanding access to resources and the infrastructure needed to get them to market.
    • Approved the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, creating over 42,000 jobs and $2 billion in earnings.
      • Signed an Executive Order mandating future pipeline work to be done by American workers and with American steel.
    • Expedited new pipeline approval and production, such as the New Burgos Pipeline to Mexico.
    • Signed an Executive Order to extend offshore oil and gas drilling and reissued a leasing program to develop offshore resources.
    • Boosting oil and gas development on Federal lands.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency is reconsidering an Obama-era rule on greenhouse gas emissions that is estimated to cost oil and natural gas operators as much as $530 million annually.
  • President Trump kept his campaign promise to coal miners and rolled back the previous Administration’s “Stream Protection Rule,” which targeted the beleaguered industry with estimated costs of at least $81 million a year.

A FREE AND FAIR TRADE AGENDA: President Trump is putting America First in trade negotiations, pursuing reciprocal agreements with our trading partners so everyone benefits.

  • One of President Trump’s first actions was to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, after the Obama Administration’s efforts failed to protect American workers.
  • President Trump announced he will renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to better reflect our modern economy while benefitting all parties so involved.
    • This week, the United States Trade Representative released its objectives for upcoming NAFTA negotiations.
  • Last week, the President began the process of renegotiating the United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement.
  • Negotiations President Trump started with China on economic cooperation have already produced results for American businesses.
    • For the first time in 14 years, American beef imports have returned to China.
    • China is welcome to negotiate contracts to import American liquefied natural gas.
  • President Trump delivered on his campaign promise to roll back the Obama Administration’s bad deal on Cuba that benefitted the Cuban regime at the expense of the Cuban people.

RESTORING LAW AND ORDER TO IMMIGRATION: President Trump has prioritized enforcing immigration laws in his first six months to protect all Americans, ensuring that our immigration system treats everyone fairly.

  • President Trump instituted tough immigration policies that have reduced illegal border crossings by 53 percent compared to the same time last year.
    • The President ordered the hiring of 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, including 5,000 additional border patrol agents.
  • Within the first 100 days of President Trump signing his executive orders on immigration enforcement, ICE conducted nearly 40 percent more Enforcement and Removal Operations compared to the same time last year.
    • Arrests of convicted criminal aliens climbed by nearly 20 percent in this time compared to the same time last year.
  • In fiscal year 2017, ICE has removed over 2,700 criminal gang members, compared to 2,057 criminal gang members in all of fiscal year 2016.
    • ICE has specifically targeted MS-13 criminal gang members for removal on immigration violations.
  • To jumpstart construction on the border wall, the President ordered the Department of Homeland Security to use $100 million of unspent appropriations in its account for border security, fencing and infrastructure.
  • President Trump directed executive agencies to employ all lawful means to enforce the immigration laws of the United States, including clamping down on sanctuary cities.
    • Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.
  • President Trump ordered the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office at DHS, ensuring that our Government can no longer ignore the victims of criminal acts by illegal aliens.  MORE 

President Trump has been impressive on the world stage as well, what with the not bowing to foreigners or kissing up to hostile regimes and such, and with the awesome speeches defending Western Civilization and the right to not be murdered or oppressed by islamic savages and all, and the respect he is being shown by leaders of other nations who recognize a true leader when they see one.

Donald Trump is a strong President and I love him for it. I also love all watching all the leftists and their enablers, who are allegedly on the right, lose their snobby collectivist minds every single day. Most fun Presidency ever. Here’s to seven and a half more years!

There is never a dull moment in the America that has Donald J. Trump as its President. While My Donald is busy doing his job, sourpuss kooks continue to lose their collectivist minds, and even if he did nothing else for the next four years, that alone would be almost too much winning. Almost.

Here is a sampling of the schadenfreudetastic awesomeness that has been unleashed by the power of MAGA in just the past few days:

We are awash in the tears of unhinged leftists.

A moron who thought a that beheaded POTUS would be funny has broken her obnoxious self, and that right there is hilarious.

Crooked Hillary Rotten Clinton, the sore loser, is going to need a bigger basket.

The left has its own circular firing squad.

Media shark jumping with their hair on fire.

Covfefe is a thing.

Democrats are now the Party of Chicken Littles.

Build-A-Burger’s gonna get a taste of MAGA.

Congratulations, President Trump.

President Trump Puts American Jobs First:

Our government rushed to join international agreements where the United States pays the costs and bears the burdens while other countries get the benefit and pay nothing.” – President Donald J. Trump

ALREADY THE WORLD’S ENERGY LEADER: The United States had already become the leader in cutting CO2 emissions while still leading in oil & gas production.

  • In the United States, energy related carbon dioxide emissions have significantly declined since before the Paris Climate Accord was negotiated, and will continue to decline as a share of worldwide emissions, particularly when compared to other nations such as China and India.
    • The Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) 2017 Annual Energy Outlook reports that, from 2005 to 2016, energy related carbon dioxide emissions fell at an average annual rate of 1.4%.
    • Emissions are projected to continue to fall from 2016 to 2040.
    • Meanwhile, the EIA reports that emissions in the developing world are expected to double their 2005 levels by 2040.
  • According to recent U.S. Energy Information Administration, the United States remained the world’s top producer of oil and natural gas combined.
  • The United States continues to be a world leader in energy, but increased competition from countries like China demonstrates the need for policies that enable America to compete on a global scale.

HARMFUL TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: The Paris Climate Accord could cost the United States economy millions of jobs and trillions of dollars in economic output over the next several decades.

  • According to an analysis by National Economic Research Associates (NERA), meeting President Obama’s commitment under the Paris Climate Accord would cost the United States nearly $3 trillion by 2040.
    • By 2040, the American economy could have 6.5 million fewer industrial sector jobs, including 3.1 million fewer manufacturing jobs.
    • Industries such as cement, iron and steel, coal, natural gas, and petroleum would be forced to cut production under President Obama’s Paris Climate Accord.

SHOULDERING THE BURDEN: Under the Paris Climate Accord, the United States would carry the burden while other countries would get the benefits.

  • Under the Obama Administration, which signed an agreement without having to deal with the economic repercussions, the United States was committed to reducing CO2 emissions by between 26 and 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025.
    • Meanwhile China can continue to increase emissions for the next 13 years.
  • The United States already contributed $1 billion to a UN Green Climate Fund. This would increase to $3 billion under pledges made by the previous Administration.

INEFFECTIVE: Even if every nation fully complied with the Paris Climate Accord, it would barely impact the climate.

  • According to researchers from MIT, if every nation that signed the Paris Climate Accord met all of their commitments until the end of the century, the impact on the climate would be negligible.

PROMISE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: President Trump is fulfilling his promise to the American people to stop international agreements that disadvantage the United States.

  • May 26, 2016, then-candidate Trump:
    • “President Obama entered the United States into the Paris Climate Accords— unilaterally, and without the permission of Congress.”
    • “So foreign bureaucrats are going to be controlling what we are using and what we are doing on our land in our country. No way.”

Under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, Americans are indeed getting put ahead of foreign moochers, and America is finally winning again, and winning bigly. The fact that America haters are going mad with the agony of their numerous defeats is really just the sweetest icing on a schadenfreudelicious cake.  Mmmm mmm mmm….
